At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the health benefits, quality, manufacture and suggested use of this superfood. At Indigo Herbs we are committed to empowering optimum health and nutrition and assisting you to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing, by having access to many of nature’s healing botanicals.

With 82% of protein per 100g, our Organic Rice Protein Powder is a hypoallergenic, complete protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids).  Proteins are the building blocks of the body used to make muscles, tendons, organs and skin as well as being used to make hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and various tiny molecules that serve various functions.

Rice protein is especially high in the sulphur containing amino acids methionine and cysteine – methionine is one of only 3 amino acids that help your body to build creatine, a protein necessary for muscle growth as well as energy.  Cysteine is one of the main building blocks for the protein glutathione – this is the only intracellular antioxidant found and as such it is able to maintain cells’ health and performance and resist disease by neutralising free radicals also keeping other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E in their active form.

These nutritional attributes make it a great protein powder for athletes and body-builders as during intense exercise the muscle fibres break down and go into protein synthesis – to gain muscle mass protein synthesis must exceed protein breakdown.  Rice protein is also high in the amino acid leucine with 6.4g per 100g, leucine levels must be on or above 2g – 3g to maximise muscle protein synthesis.

Integrating Superfoods into your daily diet is simple and easy. Superfoods are particularly dense in nutrients, and free from any bulking agents or fillers. By adding superfoods to your daily diet you can fortify your food with super nutrition. Try replacing breakfast with a superfood smoothie. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk, alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices.

Then additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties, the powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended or shaken until fully mixed in. Superfoods can be easily added to breakfast cereals such as porridge, muesli or granola. The powders, berries, grains, seeds and nuts can also be added to soups, salads, stews, curries, and used as toppings for any meal. Think about what you can replace in your daily diet with Superfoods. For full instructions go to our How to use Superfoods page.

This is a ready to eat powder and can be added to water, fruit juice, milk, smoothie or protein shake. Great protein boost before and after a workout.

High in Protein

Proteins are a group of biological compounds which are present in every live cell, organ and tissue of the body.  Meaning “first” or “of prime importance” in Greek, proteins participate in every cellular process occurring in the body.  Proteins are made up of structures called amino acids, there are a total of 21 amino acids, 9 are essential, the rest are nonessential – you must consume the essential amino acids in your diet because your body cannot make them. 

Dietary protein supports bone health in three main ways: by supplying the raw material required to construct soft bone matrix, by increasing plasma IGF1 and by promoting muscle growth and retention.  IGF1 is a growth hormone that stimulates and increases the activity of osteoblasts (cells which secrete the substance of bone).  It is especially important to ensure that children get enough protein since they are still developing and it is necessary to ensure their growth is unimpaired.  Proteins play an important role in muscle contraction and coordination, they are present in the muscle tissues in the form of many microfilaments and provide muscle structure.  Muscle growth depends on the adequacy of proteins in the body.  Proteins function as building blocks for muscles, bones and cartilage, opt for a variety of whole foods to meet your protein needs including; grass fed meat and poultry, eggs, dairy, seeds, beans and nuts.

Protein contributes to:

·         the maintenance of normal bones

·         a growth in muscle mass

·         the maintenance of muscle mass

·         Protein is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.

Indigo Herbs Rice Protein Powder starts life as organically grown non-GM brown rice, is free from artificial pollutants and is grown in a sparsely populated rural environment 

After harvest the rice is selected, cleaned, milled into rice flour and mixed with water. Special enzymes are then added to the rice flour water that break down the rice starch before being filtered to remove the carbohydrate. A pure rice protein cake is the result which is then dried and sifted into a fine powder. After testing the high quality Rice Protein Powder is ready to be packed and shipped.

High quality product. Just one thing would make our experience the best. The shipping costs are a little bit high, sometimes equal to the product value. If they were a little less, it would make Indigo Herbs the best of all.
